Question

In a hypothetical population of 1000 snapping turtles, there exists a gene with two alleles: D & d. You find that 440 of the turtles are homozygous dominant (DD), and 210 are homozygous recessive (dd). What is the frequency of the heterozygote (Dd) in the population? Group of answer choices A) 0.17 B) 0.26 C) 0.35 D) 0.50 E) 0.70

Answer #1

# total turtles = 1000

# DD = 440

# dd = 210

# Dd = 1000 - (440 + 210) = 350

Genotypic frequency of Dd = 350/1000 = 0.35

Answer is **Option C.**

A gene in a randomly-mating population has two alleles (A,a),
and the allele frequency of A is 0.65. Calculate the frequency of
homozygous recessive individuals (aa) in the population.

A population of Hawaiian Drosophila is segregating two alleles,
S and T, of the PGI gene. In a sample of 100 flies form this
population, 30 were SS, 60 were ST and 10 were TT. What is the
frequency of the S allele?
Select one:
A. 0.30
B. 0.40
C. 0.50
D. 0.60
E. 0.70

A hypothetical population ofcats has two alleles, TL
and TS, for a gene that codes for tail length. The
allele frequency of TL is 0.7 and the allele frequency
of TS is 0.3.
TLTL individuals have long tails.
TLTS individuals have medium tails.
TSTS individuals have short tails.
The equation for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium states that at a
locus with two alleles, as in this cat population, the three
genotypes will occur in specific proportions, described by the
equation p2 +...

A certain gene occurs in the population in two allelic forms, a
dominant A and a recessive a . The relative
frequencies of these alleles in the population are 0.8 and 0,2
respectively.
a) Assuming a panmictic population, what is the probability that
an individual will have a homozygous pair of alleles?
b) What is the probability that an individual will have a
heterozygous pair of alleles?
c) Only the presence of homozygous "aa" is associated with an
increased Type...

A fruit fly population has a gene with two alleles,
A1 and A2. Tests show that 60% of the gametes
produced in the population contain the A1 allele. If the
population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, what proportion of the
flies carry both A1 and A2?
0.70
d. 0.48
0.36
e. 0.24
0.09

A population of Hawaiian Drosophila is segregating two alleles,
S and T, of the PGI gene. In a sample of 100 flies form this
population, 30 were SS, 60 were ST and 10 were TT. After
calculating the allele frequency, calculate the genotypic
frequencies and analyze the observed and predicted numbers by
Chi-square statistical analysis. What is the Chi-square value?
Select one:
A. 0.06
B. 0.63
C. 3.12
D. 6.25
E. 12.5

On the planet Trogus, the population of Trogites have an
autosomal gene, HDZ, with two alleles, T and t. T is dominant to t.
Individuals with the T allele in their genotype show a propensity
for sorbet, while the remainder prefer ice cream. In multiple
population studies, 60% of individuals with the TT genotype prefer
sorbet, 25% of Tt individuals prefer sorbet, and 5% of tt
individuals prefer sorbet.
In an F1 cross of Tt x Tt genotyped individuals, among...
